If you have the demo in your library, hold on to your PS4.
P.T. might just be a brief demo, but it’s widely lauded as one of the best horror experiences in this industry in our years, which should tell you everything you need to know about just how good it is. Of course, its incredible potential and the promise of a revived Silent Hill franchise never came fruition. Not only was Silent Hills cancelled, but P.T. was nuked as well, with Konami even pulling if off the PlayStation Store.
Of course, those who downloaded the playable teaser while it was still available can still access it on their PS4s. You will not, however, be able to do the same on your PS5, even if you have it in your library. It is not supported by the console’s backward compatibility.
“The content will not be available on the PS Store, so users won’t be able to re-download the content through the backwards compatibility feature to the PS5,” a Konami spokesperson told GamesRadar.
Of course, it’s possible that players might be able to transfer the game across consoles via external storage, thus making it playable on the PS5. For now, there’s no way to be sure, so let’s hope we get official confirmation one way or another soon.
There have been quite a few rumours over the past few months of a Silent Hill reboot being developed by Sony following a partnership with Konami, but these rumours have failed to materialize. As it stands right now, Silent Hill remains dormant.
